    How to register custom nameservers

    Hi,

    I've just taken a dedicated server with a UK hosting company. I want to set up custom nameservers such that when I host client websites on this server I point their nameservers to:

    n1.mydomain.com and ns2.mydomain.com.

    So I've registered 'mydomain.com' through Heart Internet. However, I've asked Heart to register the nameservers for this domain and they want to charge 50 for doing this. Is this something that needs to be done by an official registrar as an extra step to registering the domain name, or is it literally just a case of adding two custom A records onto that domain? If the latter, then I can do this myself through the Heart control panel, but I want to get this right before I go trying anything like that.

    If anyone could advise and explain, it would be much appreciated.

    Thanks all!

    I think you should login to domain management console and set the child nameservers.
    I hope you have got dedicated IPs with dedicated server.

    Good luck
